Record-Breaking Day Of Giving For University Of Findlay

The University of Findlay raised a record-breaking amount of money during the Day of Giving on May 5th.

The university says alumni, faculty, staff, parents and friends joined together to support the annual Oiler Up, Give Back Day of Giving by donating more than $210,000.

“The generosity provided to UF from our donor family was outstanding,” said Dr. Marcia Latta, vice president for university advancement.

She said that sum is from 436 donors in just 24 hours.

“Gifts came flowing in from UF supporters of every stripe, from the trustees who helped lead the way, to alumni from coast to coast and community members here in Hancock County. Whether their interest was academics, athletics, the Mazza Museum, or another area, donors wanted to be sure that they were part of this special day to support our students.”

Individual gifts, as well as matched funds by generous donors, will help provide students with scholarships, support university growth, and provide a buffer for crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
